Intriguing #Psychologicalthriller – The Trapped Wife by Samantha Hayes

The rain hammers the glass outside. My husband has stoked the wood burner with a fresh supply of logs, and I’ve just put a joint of beef in the oven. It’s the most clichéd Sunday afternoon ever, and it’s the most heavenly one, too. Little do I know that days later, the ash in the fire will be all that remains of us…

My perfect life…

I thought I had it all – a dream job as a doctor in small town, a stunning home and a family I adore – but that illusion shattered the moment my husband Jeremy left on a work trip and vanished without a trace. Now my son and I are all alone in the world.

My missing husband…

My best friend thinks Jeremy had an accident up in the mountains, that I’ll never see him again and need to move on. I know he loves us too much to ever abandon us, but my head is still spinning with the texts I found on his phone before he left. Did I ever really know the man I married?

The night I can’t remember…

Everything changed the night of the medical conference weeks before Jeremy disappeared. I wrack my brains for answers, but my memory goes blank after my first drink. Ever since, I’ve felt like I’m being followed and can’t explain why panic thunders in my chest every time I see my newest patient. If he’s not local to the village, then why does he seem so familiar? And so dangerous?

As I piece together the shards of what really happened that fateful evening, only one thing can possibly be true: everyone is lying, even me…

My Review:

Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley, too,
For my copy of this book, here's my honest review:

This is a family drama and mystery,
An edge of your seat one with history
Starring a family doctor and her kin
In a thriller that no one can win.....

The story is full of secrets and more
Leaving you wondering just what and who saw.
A lovely family torn apart when her husband disappears - but where?
Would he abandon the family that he purported to care?

There's missing memories and maybe danger
From someone who's a stranger.
Why does he seem like someone she knows?
And why keep appearing wherever she goes?

Told from different times and points of view,
With different threads that may confound you.
It is a dark, psychological thriller
In which even the ending involves a new killer!
